There was an open house at My Gym with a special appearance by Elmo this weekend so we could not pass it up. Elena really really likes Elmo - she even says his name when she sees him! So we thought she would enjoy seeing him in person. (We were slightly worried that he might scare her but we thought we would give it a shot) Before the big appearance Elena got to play in the gym.
touched him to make sure he was real...
...and then hugged him! I know this sounds silly but I almost teared up with how adorable and sweet she was being!! We honestly had to pry her off so other kids could have a turn!
But she went straight back for more!
So he picked her up...and she was in heaven!
